Transition Zero

Transition Zero is an EU Horizon 2020-funded project, carried out by Energiesprong from 2016-2018, to establish the right market conditions for the wide-scale introduction of net zero energy homes across Europe. This was building on the success of Energiesprong in the Netherlands and advancing its implementation even further. The Transition Zero project completed on 28/2/19.


The aim of Energiesprong is to bring about desirable, viable net-zero energy refurbishment solutions to the mass market by 2020. Energiesprong transforms neighbourhoods and enhances people’s quality of life. Amongst other projects, Energiesprong carries out the Transition Zero project which is funded by the European Commission under its Horizon 2020 programme.
